Are exotic skin wallets too flashy/tacky? I don't know if I should get a ostrich or croc wallet from Bottega, a lizard one from Barneys, the patent stripy Dior homme wallet, or a simple Comme des Garson...any suggestions, please?

i have a candy novacheck wallet... not exactly practical but cute! it's the first nice wallet i've ever had. i recently saw a glace wallet and it is gorgeous (especially considering i'm not a fan of lv)!

I agree about the LV Epi leather...I have a Red Epi Porte' Tresor and a black Pochette (which I've had for about 10 years) and they are so durable and still look like new.

I bought a copper Vernis wallet, and within 3 months it was peeling at the corners!! What a waste. Don't buy anything in the Vernis unless it is just going to be a VERY occasional usage item.

i completely agree with you about the nile line... i was in dooney today and totally melting over that duffle you posted... it's HUGE! i'm hopefully going to be buying it soon, in black (i saw it and danced around with it and it's absoltuley gorgeous ) .... i'm thinking that it can be the bag i use to fill in the void until i get my crocodile dior detective bag... i might get the matching wallet that your friend has in black as well... but i'm not sure...

Wow, today I saw the duffle at Macy's in black, I told my Mommy how much I wanted it so she was like how much is it and when the woman told her she looked at me as if I had two heads then came the lecture about how much I want something then when I get it I hate it and never use it...Bia
